Can women read namaz-e-janazah (Funeral prayer)?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
ASALMUALIKUM, 1.Can women read namaz-e-janazah (Funeral prayer)? 2.What if a husband drinks his wife’s milk? Is it allowed or not? JAZAKALLH


(Fatwa: 1541/1543/M=1430)


If only women perform janazah salah, it is not makrooh, they can offer it. But if they attend the salah with men it is makrooh:

واعلم أن جماعتھن لا تکرہ في صلاۃ الجنازۃ (الشامي) ویکرہ حضورھن الجماعۃ (الدر المختار)

It is unlawful and haram for husband to drink the milk of wife. But in case one drinks, it will not have an adverse effect on nikah, it will remain intact.
